Start by shaking your color to make sure it is well mixed. Apply LipSense in one direction (not back and forth) to clean, dry lips. Keep lips apart and apply to more coats (for a total of 3 coats), allowing about 5 seconds to dry between each coat. Allow a full 30 seconds of drying time before applying the gloss. After applying your gloss you can rub your lips together! Keep your LipSense going all day by applying gloss, especially before eating!
The tingling or burning sensation is caused by the Denatured Alcohol (cosmetic grade) in the LipSense – which serves as a blender and creates a bacteria free environment in the tube. This tingling sensation is noticed more when a person has very dry lips, and will go away immediately once the gloss is applied. After using LipSense and the gloss for two weeks, the burning sensation should stop.
If you are new to LipSense you will need to purchase the Starter Kit which includes your choice of a color, the glossy gloss, and an Oops remover for $55 plus tax and shipping. After that, you may purchase individual colors for $25, or glosses for $20.
